Reflections on collaborative assessment: materiality, dialogue and group connoisseurship


Two lecturers, Clara O’Shea, Associate Lecturer with the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, and Tim Fawns, Programme Coordinator for the MSc in Clinical Education at the University of Edinburgh, presented three productive challenges when tackling group work in digital environments: the role of the material in the learning assemblage; the tension between dialogic education and assessment; and the necessary shift in focus from individual to group ‘connoisseurship’ to create a shared understanding of academic quality.
